Wild Scarabs Slot Overview
You would not want to encounter a wild scarab in real life. But in reel life, Microgaming is pleased to introduce you to a collection of the big beetles that would have any self-respecting, insectophobe wimp jumping up on a chair and screaming for help.
They’re in this game not for their awful beetle-ness, but because they’re commonly linked with Ancient Egypt, where they were an iconic image particularly on jewellery.
So we’re going back in time again. Going back in time not just in the theming of the Wild Scarabs slot game, but also in the relative simplicity of the set-up of this five-reel game with three rows that uses Microgaming’s 243-ways-to-win system to deliver a lot of prize-winning options.
The Wild Scarabs slot machine is very new on the market and proving pretty popular with players. It has a top win of 360,000 coins and is rated as low variance, meaning that it should deliver relatively regular smaller wins. Betting goes up in multiples of 0.4 and then 2 and then 4 from 0.2 coins to 60 coins, which is a great spread that’ll pull in big spenders and newbies alike.
The black beetles
When they arrive they’re going to find a very nice looking game. Sure, this is quite a simple set-up and the graphics are simple too, but there’s nothing cheap or nasty about it, this is the simplicity of elegance and good design.
The look follows a modern pattern of making the reels the star of the show, with a simple desert backdrop and framing of Egyptian-style columns. On those reels, you’ll see a decent set of symbols. The bottom of the pay table is a set of gemstones that are nicely rendered with great lighting effects.
Above them in the value stakes are ye olde Egyptian symbols, starting with an ankh, an eye, Anubis, the jackal-headed god, and Horus, the falcon-headed god. At the top of the tree sits the humble scarab beetle, which pays out 37.5-times stake, and the very highest payer (100x stake for a set of five) is a jewelled amulet with, erm, they look like wings.
The Wild Scarabs Slot Game Bonuses
The scarab is the wild. The only symbol it will not replace is the jewelled amulet that is the scatter. All pretty usual! The bonus games are triggered by these symbols too – as usual! On losing spins, if you see the wild on reel three you’ll get a bonus of more wilds – up to four – on the reels, which means you can’t lose.
It’s the free spins you really want though, right? Three scatters set them off, with 10 free spins to get you started. Wilds have a special function in this round – although the scatters lose their special function, so no retriggers. Wilds that don’t form winning patterns are hoarded until you have three and then you’ll see ‘em pop back onto the reels for a guaranteed win.
We like this Wild Scarabs slot game a lot. It looks good and plays really well. It sounds very nice too. The only setbacks are the lack of a free spins retrigger, which is a shame, and a relatively low 96.28% theoretical return to the player. We reckon that everyone will enjoy playing this game, and that’s a great reason to check any game out.
